A scarf like this.
I want to knit a scarf like this. I will only be using one color. I think it is somehow knit on the bias, but it has straight edged ends. Anyone know how to do this? I have already looked at knittingpatterncentral.

I saw a sample at the LYS and it was really nice and drapey, but they were out of the pattern. (Blue Sky Alpacas Pattern).

Thanks,
Candice

That is pretty, but not quite what I am looking for. THe Blue Sky Alpaca scarf was just garter stitch (if I remember correctly). Bookmarking the jute pattern though!

Try this -

Cast on 2 sts, kfb both sts. (alt - CO 1, kfb - see which works better)
next row, k across
next row - kfb, k to last st. Repeat these 2 rows until you get the width you want the scarf to be ending with the knit row. The width is measured from your cast on sts up one side, *not* across the sts on the needle.

next row - kfb, knit to last 2 sts, k2tog. knit next row. Repeat these two rows until it's as long as you want; that's be easy to measure at that point.

next row - ssk (or BO 1 st) knit to last 2 sts, k2tog. knit next row. Repeat rows until there's 2 sts left - k2tog.

It's easy to do and you get squared off ends.

Ooops. I reread my directions and noticed I wrote:

That should read, `kfb, k to last st, kfb'. You'll want to be increasing on both ends of the row until you get to the width you want.

It was late when I posted and I'd had a looooooong last half hour at work.

Thanks for the correction. So it should read like this?

Row 1: Cast on 2 sts, kfb both sts. (alt - CO 1, kfb - see which works better)
Row 2: k across
Row 3: kfb, k to last st, kfb

Repeat these 2 rows until you get the width you want the scarf to be ending with the knit row. The width is measured from your cast on sts up one side, *not* across the sts on the needle.


next row - ssk (or BO 1 st) knit to last 2 sts, k2tog. knit next row. Repeat rows until there's 2 sts left - k2tog.

You forgot a step -

When it's wide enough,

kfb, knit to last 2 sts, k2tog. knit next row.
Repeat these two rows until it's as long as you want; that's be easy to measure at that point.

Then you'd do the part where you're decreasing on both ends -

ssk (or BO 1 st) knit to last 2 sts, k2tog. knit next row. Repeat rows until there's 2 sts left - k2tog.
